  1. This is the way criminals solve problems that didn’t have parents teaching them right from wrong. Responsible gun owners don’t behavior this way.

  2. Are your guys going to follow up on this? This was my sister and the cops are giving up cause there’s been no coverage on it I’m willing to do an interview and so are my parents we want to know who did this we know people have seen something and they’re just afraid to talk
